Etruscan fresco (detail) of a musician from the Tomb of the Triclinium in the Necropolis of Monterozzi

The Etruscans hold a reputation for being mysterious, but the truth is we know a lot about these creative ancient Italians and their remarkable contributions to the history of art. Contemporaries of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Etruscans maintained a distinctive language and visual culture.

Art historian and author Laura Morelli shines a light on three masterworks of Etruscan painting, sculpture, and metalwork excavated from tombs in central Italy. She examines how the Etruscans adorned the places where they planned to spend eternity, and the incredible luxury objects they took with them.

Morelli takes a deep dive into the heart of ancient Italy to explore what makes Etruscan culture unique in the Mediterranean world; how to appreciate the hallmarks of Etruscan visual art; and why Etruscan archeology is one of the most vibrant fields of study today.
